Have you been hoarding egg crates and magazines, sneaking tongue depressors out of the doctor's office, or loitering outside of Foot Locker asking patrons for their shoe boxes? Do you need some ideas for art projects, science experiments, historical models, or just something you can do to reach those tactile students in your class?
Then boy have we got a guide for you. Everything from newspaper planters to math games, catapults to non-Newtonian fluids, we've got your classroom covered with projects for all subjects. PDF versions of each of these instructables are available to pro members of the site. And if you're a teacher, we've got free pro memberships for you. Because sometimes you burn through your entire educator tax-deductible $250 in September.
Learning objectives covered:
Students can recognize and describe the states of matter.
Students can describe how proteins combine to make cheese.
Students can create a basic electronics circuit by building an LED Throwie.
Students can describe the fundamentals of multiplication and division using Vedic math.
Students can create art out of found or household objects.
These projects can work from K-12, though some are clearly written with a specific audience in mind.
